Canon Shooting Demonstration in 1900

A canon shooting event was an unofficial sport at 1900 Olympic Games in Paris. It is not clear what the competition involved, maybe shooting fir distance and accuracy. It never appeared at the Olympic again, though the closing ceremony at the London 2012 Games included a demonstration by a human cannonball.


It consisted of 17 events, all for men. Only French competitors participated. No other results are known.
